as long as the actual circuit is still intact, it will work.
if it doesn't work, you could always put on a bit of solder yourself.

Try to find someone in your local area who has some technical ability........ or a computer/ Tv repair service.
They shouldn't charge much to re-solder or do a simple repair.
